Mohammad Asif401844.50173010
0.3 to G Gambhir, Gone! Gambhir comes down the track, quite impudently, to Mohammad Asif and smacks the ball back towards the bowler. It's not well hit but is still travelling quite quickly. Asif lunges to his right in his follow-through and snatches the ball. It pops out of his hand but he bends low and takes a good catch. That is well done.. 0/1
2.1 to V Sehwag, bowled him! Asif pitches it on a perfect length and the ball swings into Sehwag from outside off stump, Sehwag stands in his crease and tries to drive through the off side, he gets beaten by the swing and the thick inside edge crashes into the stumps. 9/2
4.1 to Yuvraj Singh, full ball on off and middle stump, Yuvraj tries to hit through mid-on by closing the face of the bat, the ball seams across him and he gets a leading edge that loops up tamely towards Shoaib Malik at mid-off, India are in tatters. 19/3
6.4 to KD Karthik, Asif has his fourth! The ball cuts sharply back into Karthik who tries to defend without moving his feet, the ball hits Karthik's elbow and crashes into the stumps, what an awesome spell this has been. 36/4
Umar Gul402706.75124010
Yasir Arafat403919.7592300
19.1 to MS Dhoni, full ball on off stump, Dhoni tries to smash it out of the ground but gets too much under it, he skies it high in the air to Younis Khan at long-off who takes a well-judged catch. 138/8
Sohail Tanvir401814.50111010
12.1 to RV Uthappa, gone! the angle works for Tanvir, he pitches it on middle and takes it across Uthappa who pokes at it with the bat away from his body, Akmal pouches the faint edge, that's a huge blow for India for Uthappa was doing all the scoring. 82/5
Shahid Afridi403729.2562200
15.6 to IK Pathan, bowled him! Afridi fires in the quicker ball, Pathan tries to defend but gets beaten and the ball clips leg stump, that's the end of that little contest. 111/6
17.1 to Harbhajan Singh, bowled him! Harbhajan tries to slog Afridi across the line, he misses completely but Afridi hits the stumps, that's the second wicket that India have lost soon after the rain break, Uthappa was the first. 123/7

RP Singh402315.75152130
2.1 to Imran Nazir, bowled him! Nazir tries to slog one through midwicket, he misses and the ball hits leg stump, that was a dismissal waiting to happen because Nazir was slogging at everything. 12/1

Irfan Pathan412025.00143010
8.5 to Younis Khan, bowled him! Irfan angles the ball across Younis who comes forward and tries to defend, the ball bounces a bit more, hits the glove and crashes into the stumps, huge wicket for India. 47/4
14.6 to Shoaib Malik, caught! Malik tries to hit another one over midwicket but the ball is angling across him and he only gets a top edge that flies high in the air to Harbhajan at cover who takes a simple catch. 87/5
Harbhajan Singh403218.0062100
17.4 to Shahid Afridi, caught! Afridi tries to blast another one out of the ground, it's a low full toss from Harbhajan and this time the top edge is safely held by Karthik at mid-off, crucial wicket this. 103/6
